    I hate to write one of these posts, it hurts both of the sides, but I hope this turns out positively. I am not trying to blame anyone too early, but by reading the below scenario you might come to a conclusion.

    So what happened was, as some of you know I run a couple CPA networks and that there is also a fake scam report on my business.

    I am not the best person when it comes to SEO, backlinking and that stuff and that was the reason for some people to target me with ease.

    On Apr 3rd I have seen this thread by TheBacklinkProdigy that he is giving away free backlinks. So I added him on skype. After a few mins of conversation, I explained him my problem and how that fake scam complaint is on google.

    This was the thread

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-my-bhw-friends-free-absolutely-no-catch.html

    Here is the Skype Convo till date.

    [​IMG]

    So as you can see from that convo...I am not very good at SEO, and I messaged bk071 (barry) to ask what he thinks...but he wasn't online at the time...

    so I was back on bhw lurking around some SEO threads and I came across this person called "the_demon".

    So I added him on skype as well, and after a few mins told him how the previous person quoted me for $250. You can see from the skype logs below.

    [​IMG]

    So now you might ask how have I discovered all this and why am I suspecting people.

    Well, today I tried to google "fivestarcpa" and all of a sudden I see this fake scam complaint ranking on the first spot.

    So I just looked into it and I found a new comment added.

    See this.

    [​IMG]

    So I looked into the person's profile and discovered this.

    [​IMG]

    I clicked on that number and this came up

    [​IMG]

    Observe the part where the person commented on just those two pages?

    Now you might say, it could be the same person who wrote it the first time?

    It just couldn't be that guy because I know he was long gone. The guy who originally posted it tried to steal my fan pages. He threatened me to remove this post in return for some fan pages. Even a lot of people know about that. His name was jim morrison, a known scammer who, just even recently scammed fuggz for fan pages.

    Secondly, even if it was that exact guy who wrote it in the first place, why would he write it on his company? Why would he hurt his own business?

    Now, I swear to god that on Apr 3rd I haven't talked about this issue with any other people, except those two.

    I am not pre-judging people. And I know for a fact I do not deserve these false accusations against me especially when I am truthful to people I am surrounded with.

    What I think so far : I am neutral, although I have my suspicions toward backlink prodigy, no idea why. Demon seemed more professional. BacklinkProdigy seemed nice.

    I hope this issue gets cleared up. Waiting for your thoughts.

    Edit: Here are all the links you might refer to

    Note : I have also messaged WizGizmo and M.A.D. before posting this shitlist, but since I have not received any of their replies, I just urged to leave it to the community to decide.

    I hope you will solve this scenario and find out if he truly is the guy who posted fake scam report or not. But you should truly focus on your business instead on jealous fuckers.

    haha thanks for the response man, and that's what I am exactly trying to figure out.

    I do focus on my business, but what I have a tendency to make everyone happy and apparently that doesn't work all the time.

    This is true, I had not posted a shitlist or anything yet because I am very busy but trying to compile a list of know facebook fanpage scammers to add to one of my sites, and also I have got the banks involved now trying to bust this guy and get any info on him at all that I can find. I already have a lot but I am making a larger case against him (he has been spreading my personal info around defaming my character) for small claims so I have not posted it here yet, but now is as good time as any to tell about him.

    I have just received notice that he has scammed another IM'er for $3k that is going to the police as well, and this guy is in the US so we hope to bust hi soon.


    (I don't know if I am allowed to post any personal info about him so please let me know if I may)

    Skype: facebooksm0stwanted (If you google this you will find pastebin about him as well)

    Skype display name: Jim Morrison

    Story (I have all Skype convo and phone records/texts if anyone would like to view them):

    I contacted "Jim Morrison" about a fanpage he had for sale. We agreed upon a price and he said he would accept near $700 as a discount if I would wire him the $$$. I figured why not, he is in the US and it is to his bank so I have his personal info. He wanted to call me first to give me the account wire transfer info so I gave him my number and he called. The call came from Oregon, where the wire was delivered to and all the other info points where he is from.

    When chatting on the phone he seemed to know a bit about IM and even knew of some popular CPA networks and the affiliate managers so this guy is very sneeky.

    I went to the bank and made the $700 transfer to the name he gave me, and within 1hr he texted me that he received the transfer. I gave him the admin info and waited. After a day or so of him not responding to my messages I told him I could tell he was on Skype and ignoring me (I know how to detect when user is invisible) and I also told him I was going to involve the law if he didn't give me a refund or the page. He blocked me from Skype then.

    I called the # he called me from earlier the day before and it was disconnected. I think he had extra #'s because he told me he was forwarding and making PVAs.

    I contacted a mutual contact and asked him to relay the message that I was going to report him to y bank and local PD if he didn't refund. This is where it gets a little funny.

    "Jim" started threatening me with threats of reporting me to facebook if i just didn't "let this go". Basically he was trying to say if I didn't just let him keep the $700 that he was going to have his contact at FB (one of the lawyers at the firm that represents FB) bust me for spamming facebook. He did have all the correct lawyer info, but I could tell he was full of shit and I don't spam FB, I just provide educational info on viral marketing that may or may not violate FB TOS.

    He continued sending me different clauses and laws that I was breaking and even said "We know you are Fuggz from BHW" and "I am meeting with (FB laywer) Monday morning, you are going down big time. Here is one of the last things he sent:

    I wasn't falling for it and went through with reporting to y bank. We are trying now to recover the funds but if they cannot by Monday then other actions are lined up.

    I got a message from bornformoney a few hours later stating that this guy was in Skype chats spreading my real info around claiming I was a scammer. Born has had problems with him as well it seemed. I then the next day also got messages from a few other members here saying the same thing (they all know I am extremely honest and wanted to help). We now have more of his personal info, you can google some of the info in this post to get it obviously, but I would love to be allowed to post what we have if it is fine with the mods.

    It turns out this ass clown was the old owner of Edictnetwork, an old affiliate network, just google them to find more info on how much of a scumbag this guy is. I have been unexpectedly 10 times busier this past few weeks than I imagined so a bit hard pressed for any freetime but there are a few of us and law enforcement getting involved to get this guy, he has been using aliases and is a real pure scam artist. I just got another contact that has more info on this same guy that was just scammed for $3k. If you have any more info or been scammed by him as well PLEASE send me a PM or add me on Skype.

    Lastly I would again like to say that I am compiling a list of known facebook page scammers. As many of you know I have many contacts looking for pages and one reason I am contacted is because of my honesty. It seems the vast majority of buyers looking for pages have been scammed so I am adding a list to one of my sites so we can cut down on FB page scamming. I will make a post about it next week when I make the site public so you all can help me spread the word about FB page scammers so we can stop these lowlifes from stealing and scamming (they apparently can't make $$$ without lying and cheating). Stay tuned.


    EDIT: This guy thinks he is clever and is on to at least me that I know this other info about him. He is EXTREMELY sneeky and I am quite positive this is just a weak attempt at "throwing us off his scent".

    Not sure how "pro" that tip is making you feel, but its pretty damn useless.

    I had to present the information as clearly as possible as both my prospects and forum members / mods / authorities can take a wise decision.

    Anyway, if you had to come across one of these situations, believe me, you wouldn't summarize it in "first few paragraphs".

    Now, I have no idea you may or may not, that's just me.

    I keep it clear for a reason.

    I'm not saying you should keep the thread short. What I'm saying is if you're going to write 1000's of words you expect people to read, you should make your main points in the first few paragraphs. This is what we call an "introduction".

    hmm why would he hurt his potential clients though?
    He wouldnt need to make your problem bigger as it already bugs you anyway right?
    He pushed 1400 links for me in just 20 minutes for free.
    Impressive result. But defintely always be cautious.

    Yes, If you want an "introduction" then yes I have put that up in the first few lines, the whole situation and where I am standing in it.

    I am not trying to beef up here, and neither do I expect that from you.

    Peace brother

    I am not anyone's client yet.

    It could be an act to urge me into buying one's service. Now that I have sensed that, I am more than reluctant to do it.

    Yes, he definitely is a nice person I think, but who wasn't "m0gol", "athleted...", you see what I mean.

    Yeah.

    Hey man. Peace :)

    Back on topic: It sucks. You've definitley been stitched up. Hard to gather real evidence though, as is the nature of the internet. Hope you get it resolved soon.

    Exactly.

    Why would I go out of my way to do something I'm not paid for? I have so many clients, and not enough time, I wish you find out who ever posted it. But it wasn't me my good friend.

    Hope you improve your business :) Wish you the best my dude :)

    Also I would edit your post and not post your links, why reveal your fake scam reports even more? Maybe you have a jealous hater somewhere on the internet, but I'll tell you one thing. You're making someone mad, so think of who you made mad and you'll have a list of people. :)

    Just looking at your profile, I can tell you've been around the block, and you're not an amatuer online. You have rep, and also a negative iTrader. Is that iTrader from me too? No it's not. So go piss off people and expect nothing back, that's what happens. Treat people with respect and it's given back to you.

    I for one, don't post 'complaints' when someone doesn't 'buy my services.' If I did that, I'd be posting 50+ complaints per day lol. I hope you realize your business is your image, and my image is everything.

    I've helped a lot of people here, and for free. I've had many people not buy after wards and guess what, I don't complain, I don't say anything back, and I thank them for the time spent chatting with me.

    Good luck on your CPA network :)

    Thanks for the effort for digging up this thread and there are a few things that I need to mention to clarify your thoughts about my 'enemies'.

    I certainly find it interesting that you have't actually found this thread when it was around on the first page of this section for 3 days.

    Firstly, the negative itrader, if you actually look into the comment left by the guy leaving a neg itrader...he said, "ruining BHW with a new technique?"...All I did was share a method and help out the community. You can see he got banned too.

    Secondly, talking about who left the fake scam complaint. I actually KNOW the person who did it. I mentioned in the above post who had done it, and NO, I don't go around pissing people off, and everyone who talked to me in the past know that very well.

    From looking at your profile, I can also tell you've made it this month, quickly grew it, at the speed of light and these are some obvious signs for the upcoming consequences. Nothing bad, all good.

    Thirdly, I am not expecting someone teaching me about treating 'people with respect', since I am completely conscious about what's going on around me and yes I do respect this community as a whole.

    I for one, don't post shitlists around as a hobby.

    It's funny you mention that you have helped a lot of people here for 'free', yet I do not understand why you haven't gotten a Jr.Vip as it was this VERY forum that had given you the opportunity to help people.

    After all this, what's more shocking is that you are promoting and have been affiliated with a forum (not going to mention the name) that's RIPPING OFF BHW's content. Talk about being ethical and loyal haha.

    Proof?

    Here :
    [​IMG]

    And you are the super moderator on that forum.

    [​IMG]

    Also this is more interesting.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Also observe the unusual usage of the smilies.

    Now, I am not judging anyone, but just stating the facts.


    That all being said, good luck with your backlinking business brother. :) No hard feelings, and I was just stating the facts that I had interpreted.


    P.S. This thread will only calm down when I find the culprit, and I know how to very well.

    Yeah man, I do not understand if I really deserve this all or not. I think I do not. People know about me, and in fact you do too, yet I have to go through all this. I am delighted to see that you are thinking to work with us bro.

    You see I care for OUR company man, and I am ready to lose blood for it.

    Nothing, Nothing, and really Nothing will stop us from reaching the TOP!

    Even if he isn't banned for adding to the fake scam report, he'll definitely get banned for ripping stuff off BHW. ;)

    As mentioned, I'm quite busy and don't go out of my way to do things that don't benefit me. I don't put I'm CPA, bitch in my title. I'm not 12

    I don't read shit list threads all day like some others do. I think it's entertaining in a way but you could use your time for business and making money :)



    Anyways yes I'm on that forum. Where is the content that was stolen? Provide the link for the thread here and the thread there.

    That forum has all unique content. lol Nice try buddy.

    Also why wasn't your iTrader fixed if he was banned? Don't they normally do that? Anyways, I hope you find the culprit and sue him in court. :) Good luck with your network! (you need it)

    I just got this PM from TheBacklinkProdigy.
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/shit-list/427533-fivestar-cpa-fake-scam-report-thebacklinkprodigy-hurting-my-business.html#post4181927

    I'm not going to waste my time and money to go look for ripped off threads in the VIP section of your forum. All the proof I needed to make that statement is in the link above, which is a post on this thread itself.

    Though, I'll give you this: if you had stuff from Exec VIP, you'd be making a shitload more money and not bothering with these little things.
